Just to the south of Dallas, Waxahachie is a great place to experience the variety of dining experiences that the area has to offer. You can enjoy Tex-Mex favorites like tacos stuffed with chicken, steak or pork or a bowl of tortilla soup. Barbecue joints and smokehouses offer a chance to try a slow-cooked rack of ribs slathered in sauce or some slices of beef brisket. And, of course, you can always order a bowl of beefy chili, the state dish, or a thick steak. Waxahachie also offers options for those looking for fresh seafood, authentic Italian or Japanese fare. For a sweet treat, head to a bakery to enjoy a kolache stuffed with fruit filling.
